About this sound Huangpu , formerly romanized as Whampoa, is one of the ten districts of Guangzhou, the capital of China's Guangdong Province. Despite its name, it does not include Huangpu Island (now Pazhou) or its famous anchorage. Huangpu absorbed Guangzhou's former Luogang District in 2014.

History[edit]

During the Canton trade, Changzhou was known as "Dane's Island" and used by Danish crews for repairs and burials. It lay on the eastern side of the Huangpu or "Whampoa" anchorage, named for Huangpu Island (now Pazhou in Haizhu District). The Whampoa Military Academy was founded on Changzhou in 1924.[citation needed]

On 12 February 2014, Luogang District was dissolved by China's central government and its area added to Huangpu.[2]
